Anti-Semitism In Sweden: Jewish Woman Beaten By Angry Group Of Muslims For Wearing Star Of David
Anti-Semitism is rife in Sweden as Muslim gangs in the Scandinavian country begin to show their true colors. This was confirmed last Thursday when a Jewish woman was attacked and badly beaten by a hate-filled group of people.
Anna Sjogren, who was walking innocently through a predominantly-Muslim suburb of the city of Uppsala in central Sweden, was set upon by the group after they noticed she was wearing a star of David necklace.
Sjogren told the WZO Center: “A Muslim girl saw that I was wearing the Star of David on my neck and she started swearing at me and spat in my face. I got very upset and pushed her off.”
At which point, says Sjogren, a sharp object was thrown at her face and before she knew it she was surrounded by at least 10 angry Muslims. And what were they angry about? The fact that she was Jewish, even though Jews have been living in Sweden far longer than Muslims.
“There were at least ten witnesses to the attack. All ten of them were wearing hijabs or scarfs in the colors of the PLO. Some surrounding witnesses claim that I ‘tripped’ and fell and that no one hurt me. It’s just unbelievable,” the victim of the attack said.
When the vicious and unprovoked attack was ove, the victim suffered more as the group told her: “Shut up or we’ll kill you,” as the ambulance came to take her to the hospital.
Sjogren said: “I cannot go to the police. The worst thing is that they will get my name and address. They’ll know where to find me and know and know I am the Jew who reported it.”
Despite the attack Sjogren said she will not stop wearing her star of David necklace, which identifies her as a Jew:
“The Star of David is extremely meaningful and significant. I will never take it down no matter what happens. When other Facebook users show support I will stand up proudly for Israel, I will never let any one silence me. Am Yisrael Chai. We will never forget and never forgive.”
The wave of anti-Semitism sweeping Scandinavia follows a similar theme to the same dangerous trend in other parts of Europe and America. That protagonists are hate-filled, violent Muslim groups which feel at liberty, even though they are in a minority themselves, to attack Jews in the streets.
Will the citizens of Sweden wake up soon enough to the threat that extreme Islam poses to them personally, as well as to their Jewish communities.?
